The Yahoo sponsored event opened with the presentation of the eleven short-listed case studies in a packed hall.

In the consumer products category Lowe Lintas bagged the gold for Pepsodent "Dishoom Dishoom" campaign. Silver in this category was awarded to Contract for Cadbury temptations "too good to share" campaign and the bronze went to Orchard advertising for its "Coca-Cola Gaana" campaign, brand, of course was Coke."

In the services category, only a gold was given away, and it went to Contract Advertising for Children's Growth Bond Programme for ICICI Children's growth bond.
